    REI stopped carrying Hennessy?

    Anyone notice that REI is not carrying Hennessy stuff anymore. There online selection has trickled down to just the large Hex Fly. Just a few months ago they had the hyperlight, the Expedition, Explorer and Scout. Last week they just had old bottom entry style explorers. Today no Hennesy hammock at all.

    Anyone know if this is just temporary, or is REI done with selling Hennessy?

    I hope not, because I was going to use my next year's dividens to buy my first Hennessy.

    I think I read somewhere on here that Tom Hennessy wanted to pull out of retail locations and only sell through the hennessy site.

    Why on earth would someone who sells outdoor gear, not want REI to carry it?

    I heard about this a few months ago. But, what I heard was that they weren't selling that well in REI stores. You gotta remember that hammock camping is a very very small group of people. It really is a shame though.

    30-40% margin plus maybe eating too many stupid returns may have made it not worth the effort when he can just sell word of mouth off his web site.
